An access log contains a record of all of the files that have been requested by the visitors while exploring your site. The list is detailed, so if you have a webpage with two embedded images, for instance, all of the three files will be in the log, not only the page. An access log normally includes the date, the OS, the browser and the IP address for each and every file in human-readable form, so you can get a more complete picture about the most popular files on your website. The log, which is also often named "raw data", is an addition to the web data which you commonly get with a hosting account, not a substitute. An example why you could need this sort of a log is if you intend to use some software on your personal computer to prepare a report about the website’s efficiency, but you do not want to use the typical graphs and tables which come with the server-generated website statistics.
Access Log Manager in Hosting
Enabling the generation of access logs will be really easy when you buy a hosting from our company. The Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all the accounts, features a section dedicated to different logs which is where you shall find the access logs too. As you go there, you'll see a list of all the domain names hosted within the account and the subdomains created for them. Our custom made cloud hosting platform shall start creating an access log for each of them when you click on the On button, that you will see on the right. If you don't require logs, disabling the option is just as easy and can be carried out by clicking on the Off button within the exact same section. All the logs are downloadable, therefore you can conveniently save and manage them on your desktop PC or laptop.
Access Log Manager in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, it will not take more than a few clicks to permit the generation of access logs by our system if you require them. The feature may be activated from the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and this may be done independently for every single domain name or subdomain you have within your account. As soon as you log in and check out the Access/Error Logs section of the CP, you'll see a list of all the hostnames with an On/Off button next to each one. A single click shall enable the log generation and a second one will deactivate it, so you can control this function with great efficiency. A Download link in the same section will enable you to save the gathered content as a text file, which you may then use on your computer. Even when the logs are disabled, you shall still be able to download the data that's been previously generated.
